Shane Ross: Let Patrick lead the probe
PATRICK Honohan has made a dream start as governor of the Central Bank. He is already gloriously offside with the Government, his patrons. Brownie points for Patrick.
Brian Cowen must be spitting blood at the governor's call for an inquiry into what went wrong in the banks. Brian Lenihan's protegee had poked the Taoiseach in the eye. Initially, Cowen politely rubbished the governor's idea but it has gained legs galore as every day passes.
Patrick has begun a bit of a bandwagon.
